Palmer Cup: Meet the U.S. team
The 2014 Palmer Cup teams were announced last week ahead of the June 26-28 Ryder Cup-style competition against Team Europe at Walton Heath Golf Club in England.

Here is a look at the players selected to represent the United States:

Cameron Wilson
Wilson recently beat out teammate and World No. 1 Patrick Rodgers for the Western Intercollegiate but has been the model of consistency for more than a year. He has seven Top 10 finishes in eight starts and took fourth at the Australian Master of the Amateurs.

Ollie Schniederjans
Georgia Tech
With four victories already this collegiate season, Schniederjans is a steady force in the U.S. lineup. His NCAA success during the 2013- 2014 season, of course, comes following some major success during the 2013 summer schedule, which included Top 10s at the Dogwood, Northeast, Southern, Players and NCAA Championship.

Robby Shelton
For Alabama, Shelton -- a highly-regarded incoming freshman -- picked up right where All-American and former Haskins Award winner Justin Thomas left off. Shelton already has two collegiate victories and played well at the Jones Cup earlier this year, finishing tied for 17th.

Wyndham Clark
Oklahoma State
Clark doesn't have a collegiate victory this season but, according to Golfweek, he's the best player without a 'W'. With eight Top-6 finishes, including three events in which he finished as the runner-up, Clark can undoubtedly compete.

Brandon Hagy
One of the mainstays for Cal during its torrid run of success, Hagy missed out on the chance to join teammates on last year's Walker Cup squad. He'll be among the leaders and players to watch at the Palmer Cup. He has three wins and a 70.53 stroke average for the Golden Bears.

Rico Hoey
Southern California
Hoey won the Gifford Collegiate and placed second at The Goodwin and Lamkin Grips San Diego Classic. He has been a consistent player at the highest of levels.

Bryson DeChambeau
Southern Methodist
With seven Top-10 finishes this year, DeChambeau is No. 19 in Golfweek's NCAA player rankings. He won last year's Trans-Miss and was second at the Sahalee. Earlier this year, he contended at the Jones Cup.

Anthony Maccaglia
The first NCAA Division III player to be selected to the Palmer Cup squad, Maccaglia has won three times this year and is a two- time Div. III All-American. In 2012, he was the division's Player of the Year and won the National Individual title. He has also logged a pair of Top 15s at the Dogwood and Southeastern Amateur last summer.

Trey Mullinax
Mullinax is the top-ranked player in Golfweek's NCAA ratings and won the Isleworth Invitational earlier this year. Most recently, he has a sixth-place finish at the prestigious Jones Cup.

Stewart Jolly
A coach's pick, Jolly is a Top 25 golfer in the Golfweek ratings and won the Golfweek Conference Challenge earlier this year.
